We just found out that Google’s Pixel 3 smartphone will be announced on 4th of October, which is not surprising, since earlier Pixel phones were released on the same date. Back in 2016, Pixel and Pixel XL were also launched on 4th of October, and the same happened the following year, in 2017, when Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were released on the same day.
Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be announced on 4th of October
The news about the release date comes from the ‘This Is Tech Today’ channel, which revealed that both Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be officially announced on October 4th. The announcement was revealed by Famebit in a job listing. Famebit was acquired by Google in 2016 and is based in Canada. Starting with 2016, the company is grouped under the YouTube division. Famebit gives YouTubers the opportunity to get some extra money through the promotion of various products and services to their audience.
What is mentioned in the listing
The job listing seems to be searching for “Canadian creators ONLY” and in particular a Creator who is not at the moment a Google Pixel user but would like to switch to Pixel 3. Google wants the creator to share a video with their experience of switching from another device to the Pixel 3 smartphone, once they switched over their contacts, apps and other necessary data. The promotional video needs to have details about why the user decided to switch and how the process was like.
More details about the upcoming smartphones
Both smartphones will run Android Pie, with Pixel 3 expected to have a 5.3-inch display with no screen cut out, and Pixel 3 XL featuring a 6.2-inch display.
